  1. Abnormal

    Abnormal is the eighth studio album by recording artist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal released in July 2008. Abnormal is Thal's first solo release as a member of Guns N' Roses. Abnormal is the follow-up to Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal's previous offering Normal, a hard rock album flavored with a light-hearted mix of different styles and genres, with catchy hooks and blistering guitar work. Abnormal is a continuation of a very personal tale. If Normal was the first chapter, then Abnormal is the second chapter of the same book. Normal was a tale about how his life looked when he wrote the album. Abnormal is a tale about his life three years later, after touring with Guns N' Roses and after all those things that changed his life. It’s like yin and yang. Abnormal is the next element of a puzzle, which permits to get to know better the painting sketched at Normal.

The Roycroft Dictionary

  1. abnormal

    To have intelligence, character or genius; to be less stupid than one's neighbor; to be better than the worst; to be one's self. _E. g._, the writer of these lines.
